“Liverpool 2.0” this, “mentality monsters” that. Reds followers have usually been derided for overestimating their favourite stars, however they have been proper to this point this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s crew are second within the Premier League table and are simply two factors behind leaders Arsenal. Their solely dwelling defeat got here by the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, a defeat that noticed Liverpool lowered to 9 males and a purpose wrongly disallowed for offside after the largest VAR error in historical past.
In their final act of escape, Liverpool overturned a 3-2 win at dwelling to Fulham with three minutes left of regular time. All 4 goals scored by the hosts have been crackers of their rights.
But how do they examine to one another? We love a good ranking TO 90 minutes. This is the primary fodder round right here.
4. Own purpose by Bernd Leno
Someone ought to begin a petition to make sure that these kinds of goals are awarded to free kick takers.
If Trent Alexander-Arnold’s set piece had merely crossed the road after crashing the underside of the crossbar and never bounced again onto Bernd Leno’s head, he can be two locations greater on this listing.
But hey, that wasn’t the case. It hit poor Leno’s cranium. We cannot reside with regrets, we are able to solely transfer ahead. Someday the world could also be a simply place, however not at the moment.
3. Wataru Endo Leveler
Wataru Endo will get bonus factors for this purpose contemplating it got here within the 87th minute to convey Liverpool degree, when aesthetically it seems like a purpose that often comes with the Reds round 14-0 at dwelling against gamers and half-timers in Europe League or FA Cup.
It’s hit with finesse somewhat than power, and if you happen to stare at it lengthy sufficient you begin to surprise if Leno ought to have raised his arm quicker. It’s nonetheless a terrific purpose, however the usual right here is stupidly excessive.
2. Trent Alexander-Arnold winner
Okay, perhaps we have to ask Fulham some severe questions on their protection right here. Because Alexander-Arnold was given the time and house to take a spark off his thigh AND let the ball bounce earlier than hitting it with out anybody even coming near closing it?
But the Liverpool vice-captain nonetheless had a variety of work to do. You can really feel the rising rigidity at Anfield, the nerves and anguish, the racing heartbeat of fifty,000 individuals in unison. Controlling adrenaline and soccer itself is an incomprehensible job for you or me. This is why skilled sport is so magical.
1. Pile Driver by Alexis Mac Allister
Right, there would solely ever be one winner, proper?
The audacity. The curve. The noose. The aesthetics. Once once more the audacity. The goal. THE goal.
What a disgrace that Alejandro Garnacho has already scored the purpose of the season award.
